Boredom may be acceptable on the couch, but never in the gym. RAW Fitness instructors animate a dedication to that credo by invigorating students of all skill levels during indoor or outdoor training with their constantly changing boot camps. The team melds traditional exercises, such as light running and resistance training, with unorthodox segments spent crawling and climbing through obstacle courses either solo or teamed up with a partner. But RAW’s fitness system, which targets thighs, glutes, and abs, is only one part of the equation, like a presidential candidate's hair or abs. In addition to their boot-camp routines, trainers lead the Eating for Success nutritional program, which teaches students 12 habits to permanently lose weight.
The staff at Active Life Health and Wellness specializes in correcting postural misalignments and relieving chronic aches. During the 15-minute hydro massage, patients lay atop a mechanical hydration bed as focused streams of water coddle their bone sheaths as gently as a tap-dancing kitten. After the relaxing water-based bodywork, one of two in-house doctors performs a thorough examination of clients' bodies to analyze spinal, orthopedic, and neurological health. The 30- to 45-minute consultation scours towers of vertebrae for factors that may be contributing to continual stress and pain, such as spinal irregularities or the fiery eye of Sauron.
Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
Our goal is to provide patient service beyond all expectations and to enlighten, and inspire all those who seek out natural health care. We believe in the chiropractic principle that recognizes that a healthy aligned spine enhances the inborn healing potential of the body potential.
Gold's Gym began more than 45 years ago, and today features an impressive array of next-generation fitness gadgets, a results-oriented focus, and squeaky-clean facilities. With today's deal, one of Gold's Gym's staff of certified personal trainers will test each client's strength and flexibility, among other metrics, to help determine and design a personalized fitness regimen. Thus inspired, neophyte iron workers can complement their one-on-one sessions with regular attendance at the gym, where they can hop on a cardio machine, pump up in a controlled manner on strength-training machines, tighten up in the abdominal- and functional-stretching area, or stick with lifting huge, heavy pieces of metal and commercial chest freezers.
